Continuity mistake: Both Jason and Chad, who are wearing blue shirts and white aprons, are serving burgers, when Troy tells Chad that he wants Swiss cheese on his burger. Next shot in the kitchen, when Chad hands that burger to Zeke to add the Swiss, behind him Jason has been on kitchen dish duty wearing the green tee and blue apron. He can't be in two places at once.

Revealing mistake: When Troy crouches down on the rocks, and leans down to see his reflection in the water, oddly the reflection is not reversed, yet his hair is combed the opposite way. (Did the director actually think that if Troy's hair was combed the opposite way it would pass as a reversed reflection?) Additionally, when he crouches down, the bottom button on Troy's shirt is unbuttoned, but in the reflection (as well as in the previous and following shots) the bottom button is buttoned up.

Continuity mistake: After Fulton gives the group their staff assignments in the kitchen, during "Work This Out" there are table order tickets hanging over the grill and fry stations. In some consecutive shots the amount goes from three to one, to three, to one, back to three, etc.

Continuity mistake: As Gabriella and Troy dance out of Ms. Darbus's classroom, there are two books (yearbook and schoolbook) on Taylor's desk (in front of Jason). Next shot, when Ms. Darbus slams schoolbooks onto Jason's desk, there is only one book on Taylor's desk.

Continuity mistake: At the start, when the camera pans through the doorway of Ms. Darbus's classroom, Zeke sits on a tall stool that is about 3 feet high. Oddly enough, in the following shots, the munchkin stool he now sits on only reaches the height of about 1 foot. (Did they really think we wouldn't notice?) The wood stool also moves forward a few feet.

Continuity mistake: During "All For One" at the pool party, mid-song the six singers split up into two groups of three - two girls and a boy and two boys and a girl; Sharpay, Troy and Chad walking down to their right (viewer's left) and Ryan, Gabriella and Taylor walking down to their left (viewer's right). Next shot, still singing and walking down, the three girls are walking to their left and the three boys are walking to their right.

Continuity mistake: During "Work This Out" after Troy and Gabriella put away their spoons in buckets, the next shot Troy has a set in his right hand which he places on the table.

00:23:30

Audio problem: When Troy and Gabriella are singing "Everyday," Troy sings with his microphone away from his mouth numerous times during the scene, yet he is still heard just as well, and not at a lower level, like he should be. (Within the context of the film, this is sung live on stage and is not implied to be pre-recorded.)

Continuity mistake: At the start, when the camera pans through the doorway, as Ms. Darbus speaks on the 'stage', there is nothing between Zeke and the doorway. In the next shot, a tall wood stool appears out of nowhere right beside Zeke. Also, the height and structure of the stool he is sitting on changes.

Continuity mistake: In the Lava Springs kitchen, Kelsi holds up a dish towel, when they sing, "Maybe there's a better way to fix this greasy mess," and she drops the towel. The towel repeatedly moves around from the cart's bottom shelf, to the floor and disappears repeatedly throughout the scene.

Continuity mistake: After winning the Star Dazzle award, Ryan hugs Sharpay with the trophy in his hand. Part of the star at the top breaks off (watch Kelsi's face as it flies past her), as the rest of the star on the trophy bends down. In the next shot the star is intact.

Character mistake: Chad actually steps on first base before the baseman has the ball. He was safe.

Continuity mistake: When Miss Darbus speaks before the bell rings, there are two lamps, a cushioned chair and a small table, with a skull and teacup atop it, beside her. When the bell rings they all disappear from the platform. But note that when Chad dances with Ms. Darbus, one of the 'vanished' lamp's reflection is visible on the giant clock.

Visible crew/equipment: Throughout the film, set equipment such as the boom mic and pole, reflector screen or monitor are visible in the reflections of characters' eyeglasses and sunglasses. Such as when one of the Sharpettes asks, "So what's the theme of the summer's talent show?" in Sharpay's next close-up the boom mic and pole are visible in the reflection of her sunglasses.

Continuity mistake: The shadows of the players during the baseball game change from shot to shot; sometimes they are behind the players and others they are in front of the players. Even though shadows change positions during the course of the day, this is too rapid and out of sequence for a normal afternoon.

Continuity mistake: Before "Gotta Go My Own Way" in the kitchen scene, the bracelet on Gabriella's wrist is on her right wrist, but when she goes out to confront Sharpay, her bracelet is now on her left wrist. It stays on her left wrist until she gets to the lockers, then her bracelet is back on the right wrist and stays that way throughout the rest of the song.

01:13:50 - 01:19:55

Continuity mistake: Having just arrived at Lava Springs, when Sharpay is about to initialize the first flier, Ryan takes another with his left hand as he holds the sunglasses in his right hand. In the close-up, as Sharpay signs her initials Ryan hands her another flier with his right hand, but in the third shot, Ryan still holds his sunglasses in his right hand as he hands his sister a flier with his left hand again.

Continuity mistake: During 'Work It Out', when Troy taps on the pans with the spoon the blonde Wildcat cheerleader walks behind him, in front of the stove. Just as another Wildcat (played by Charles Klapow, the choreographer) dances across the screen with a broom, the entire back of the kitchen is in view and she is gone. Then when it cuts to the close-up, the blonde Wildcat is back by the stove.

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Evans shows up in the helicopter, its blades are still spinning at a fast clip when he exits in the close-up. Problem is, the blades are not creating the distinct whirling shadow (nor is there any wind caused by the blades) on the surface of the red chopper, that we see in the two wideshots.

Continuity mistake: During 'Work It Out', Gabriella grabs the large gold cookie tray from the side rolling cart and turns with it (couple of shots after she clinks the glasses), but next shot she grabs that gold tray from the bottom shelf of the large prep cart. What's particularly funny about that second shot is the fact that the gold tray was never on that prep cart's bottom shelf until later on in the scene, after Troy taps on it.

Trivia

Miley Cyrus has a brief cameo at the end of the film in the musical number "All For One". She is seen in a quick close-up, wearing a yellow top, dancing with other people on the rocks around the pool. Although this is commonly known to viewers of the Disney Channel, it is not as well known to those who rent the DVD, therefore this is valid trivia.
